About Grunt

Grunt is a fast-growing SaaS company based in Oslo developing data visualization tools for businesses. Our mission is to actively shape the future of data-driven decision-making.


Grunt’s founder and CEO, Mads Gedde, a former consultant at BCG, worked daily with tools like Excel and PowerPoint, and found that they were wasting copious amounts of time copy-pasting data and re-creating visualizations instead of focusing on the insights and value creation. This became the foundation for forming Grunt.
